Transport Canada is the only federal institution issuing Pleasure Craft Licences.

Since November 1, 2010, Transport Canada is the only federal institution issuing Pleasure Craft Licences. To obtain a free Pleasure Craft Licence, boaters must mail a completed application form, along with proof of vessel ownership and a signed copy of a valid piece of government-issued identification, to the Pleasure Craft Licensing Centre at the following address: 

 Pleasure Craft Licensing Centre
 PO Box 2006
 Fredericton NB E3B 5G4  

The Pleasure Craft Licensing program improves public safety and security by giving search and rescue and law enforcement agencies 24 hour, seven-day a week access to the licence information they need in emergency situations. It also provides data useful for tracking industry trends related to the many types of boating activity in Canada.
